is a community group of Charlton, Southbridge and Sturbridge residents who want
clean drinking water for their homes. Many residents have had water
for years. The DEP has determined the potentially responsible party is
SRDP (Casella) and the town of Southbridge, as they believe
contamination is eminating from the Southbridge landfill. The DEP has
stated, as far as the DEP is concerned, a potentially responsible party
(PRP) is NO different than a responsible party (RP).
We continue, through our efforts here and at meetings, to petition the DEP to name SRDP and the Town of Southbridge the responsible party for the contamination. More information concerning this issue is below and on the news, videos and documents pages, all linked below.
